Subject Re: Shared bundle repository
Date Tue, 13 Jul 2010 12:21:09 GMT
As ServiceMix, Aries, Felix, Karaf (and probably other Apache project that I
don't know) uses bundles, this seems more logic that we create something
related to osgi stuffs under Apache umbrella (for all the bundles where
Apache license is applicable)

So, why not creating something like --> Apache OSGI repository (=
maven/nexus repo that we can browse or make search from the web, ...)
